I'm making a cinnamon bun for my ferret's costume for a ferret show he's going to. What should I use for fake icing?

Oh..How about that foam that kids use for carnaval stuff..they have all colors and comes out like spaghetti from the can...you just need to shape it like icing (glue the thing with some glue - hot glue maybe..)!

a ferret show? haha, i love it!!!  thats so awesome!!  i think puffy paint would look best.  cause it would be sorta shiny when it dries so it would look like real icing

How about yarn or string?  I also like the puff paint idea too.

Please post pics when you are done, it sounds too cute!

I really don't hhave a picture in my mind of what you are making, but I found that insulation foam works great and could look like icing (well, maybe more like frosting) if your application is on a larger scale.  My son was this for Halloween one year:


You get this stuff at the hardware store.  It dries a creamy yellow color and is also stiff when dry.

i hate that insulation foam.  our nieghbor (that i hate) decided to take it upon himself to put it at the bottom corners of our garage.  and now its a big tellow mess.  if you do use it, beware...it puffs up alot

1. I would recommend puff paint in white/pink/blue, etc.
2. I MUST see your ferret in this outfit! It sounds so adorable!

What about hot glue and paint?  It will drip like frosting, and then you can paint it accordingly.
